PLEASE SIGN THE STATEMENT

Statement calling for an independent judicial inquiry into Imutran's pig-to-primate organ transplant research programme as revealed in the Diaries of Despair report published by Uncaged Campaigns and the Daily Express

I am appalled at the severe suffering that has been inflicted on higher primates in xenotransplantation research, and I am deeply concerned about the adequacy of the regulation of this programme of animal experimentation on the part of the Home Office.

In order for this affair to be investigated in a satisfactory and independent manner, I urge the Government to set up an independent judicial inquiry to examine possible breaches of UK and European law that may have taken place during the course of this research, and the conduct of the Home Office throughout this whole affair.

I suggest the following terms of reference for such an independent judicial enquiry:

"To investigate the circumstances surrounding xenotransplantation research conducted on animals by Imutran Ltd in order to identify the lessons to be learnt regarding the regulation of animal experimentation."
